A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Slippery Slope - Lemony Snicket

Snicket, if that''s his real name--which it isn''t, adds a darker (if you can believe it) element to the series as more of Olaf''s crimes and even more sinister (if you can believe it) villains are introduced. This installment presents, subtly, views on real world politics and the moral judgments we face every day. While it is not the best in the series (too much is give away (if you can believe it) and too much is introduced at the expense of old favorites such as Olaf''s staple: disguises), it is the longest, boldest and most experimental, a word that here means "separates the siblings in order to develop Sunny and provide Violet with a love interest", book in the chronicles to date.
